The site includes Grade II listed buildings, spectacular trees and provides a play haven for children and young people in this culturally diverse and mixed area.

FHA won the Coram’s Fields Masterplan competition as lead consultant, together with Birds Portchmouth Russum Architects and Philip Pank Partnership as cost consultants. This masterplan will be used as part of a HLF application and therefore the involvement of community and various stakeholders in the development of the plan, was seen as essential. 

The landscape masterplan is seen as an opportunity to create a high-quality, inclusive and safe green space that builds on its existing landscape heritage in a way that is appropriate for the 21st century.
